Cyclists, walkers, and multiple wedding parties taking photos are part of the mix in this gracious setting which has hardly changed in 50 years. Always a pleasure to visit, well-maintained, and feels as safe as it did when I was a child going to school...More

I've always loved Loose Park. The walking areas are good and the people watching is the best ever! For sure a place to visit!

Just a little off the Plaza is this huge park with walking or biking trails, a rose garden and plenty of beautiful homes surrounding it. Well worth the visit.

Great, safe park for a mile run or so, with tennis courts, splash park and rose garden. It’s also surrounded by a gorgeous neighborhood that’s great for walking around too.
